Trying to articulate an interior design theme to help others/professionals visualize what I hope to accomplish

Our 'couple' home is 1956 mid-century, one level, with great lake view and light, nicely remodeled about 8 years ago, adding slate floors for a Euro feel and, through mustard wall color and art, a 'Tuscany' look and feel. I wish to shift look to something between (I think) Gustavian (adding more white, less mustard), and/or elegant NW or Northern European lodge, withal ight tones, though, because of a grand view, I think of the house as a cool sophisticated penthouse apartment up in the trees..... Most work will be in interior design (furnishings, paint) with some painting of existing furniture (white distressed), plus creation of major closet, office and updating two bathrooms. The home is about 2400 sq ft, fairly open so that each room should stylistically harmonize.

Good place to start is by looking through photos and saving the ones the you like, then soon enough you will be able to narrow down to the color scheme and material / fabric direction you would like to go with.
